I am without a store front and am not an importer nor private labeler.
1. I buy from dōTERRA, first and foremost, because I like the quality of their products and philanthropy. Quite honestly, dōTERRA products changed the quality of my life significantly. Their Healing Hands Foundation is doing great things to help with extreme poverty in our world. They also have an eye on the sustainability of the oils they are using with Co-impact Sourcing and Global Botanical Network. Those are things close to my heart.
2. I like the 25% discount, I get points to use towards purchases, and the fact that I don't have to buy a minimum. I get something for buying frequently but am not punished for not. I get treats and freebies if I purchase a certain amount through LRP. Yet, can easily carry a very limited inventory in my professional business.
3. By referring friends, family, and customers to dōTERRA I can get them access to unique and quality products without adding expenses on to them for having a storefront or inventory.
As a conscientious consumer I have membership or accounts with:
None require me to buy anything yet each helps me get discounts, quality products, and rewards me for my loyalty. However I belong to a few programs where I get products or services that meet my needs and tastes and give me a discounts and benefits but I need to order or use the membership at specific intervals.
If you think you know you'd like to buy at discount (Wholesale Customer) then you just have to decide if you'd like to sell a bit to offset your personal costs (Wellness Advocate). Remember - no kit is needed and there is no monthly minimum,. Think Costco not Columbia House Records.
